-How did he propose?

He convinced me we were going on a picnic in Chattanooga to celebrate my belated birthday, but ended up proposing in Coolidge Park. Then, he had a surprise engagement party afterwards with friends and family from across many states!

-Tell us about your venue and why you chose it:

We chose Lanes’ Bend in Cookeville, TN. This venue is tucked away in the hills of Tennessee. It’s a perfect little white chapel, with beautiful scenery all around. It fit us perfectly!

-What was your favorite and least favorite part about the wedding planning process?

My favorite part was definitely finding the perfect dress and being able to try on all kinds of dresses with my closest gal pals. My least favorite part was figuring out all the little details of the wedding that you don’t figure out until closer to the wedding.
-Any advice for other brides planning their big day?
When wedding dress shopping try on all different kind of styles! I thought I wanted a simple form-fitting dress, but ended up falling in love with a dress that was the complete opposite!
-What was your favorite part about your wedding day?
Definitely getting to walk down the aisle, staring into the eyes of my future husband.
